Subject [jira] [Reopened] (SOLR-2852) SolrJ doesn't need woodstox jar
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:37:20 GMT


David Smiley reopened SOLR-2852:

I think the time for this has come.  What's changed is increased usage of Solr's "javabin"
format -- it's the default, not XML.  Lets reduce the dependencies users _think_ they need
(they don't *actually* need Woodstox but they don't even know that).

>                 Key: SOLR-2852
>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: clients - java
>            Reporter: David Smiley
>            Priority: Trivial
> The /dist/solrj-lib/ directory contains wstx-asl-3.2.7.jar (Woodstox StAX API).  SolrJ
doesn't actually have any type of dependency on this library. The maven build doesn't have
it as a dependency and the tests pass.  Perhaps Woodstox is faster than the JDK's StAX, I
don't know, but I find that point quite moot since SolrJ can use the efficient binary format.
 Woodstox is not a small library either, weighting in at 524KB, and of course if someone actually
wants to use it, they can.
> I propose woodstox be removed as a SolrJ dependency.  I am *not* proposing it be removed
as a Solr WAR dependency since it is actually required there due to an obscure XSLT issue.
